Cold shooting dooms Yale

Sarah Halejian (Wykoff, NJ) scored 12 points and grabbed six rebounds to lead Yale, but it wasn’t enough. Columbia picked up their first league win of the season with a 56-52 home victory over Yale.

It seemed as though Halejian was the only player to find some offense. The freshman point guard shot 5-for-11 from the field. As a team, Yale shot 16-for-67 shooting (23.9 percent), including 4-for-22 from 3-point range (18.2 percent).

For the Bulldogs, it was a setback in their quest to earn a second-consecutive postseason berth. The second-place finisher in the Ivy League earns an automatic bid in the Women’s National Invitational Tournament (WNIT). Despite the loss, the BulldogsĀ (15-10, 7-4 Ivy League) remain in second place by a half-game over Harvard, which lost to Princeton Friday night to fall to 6-4 in the Ivy League standings.
